I have been in the traffic management industry for over 10 years and have qualified tickets for M1/M2/M7.  TM is like a legal drug, I just love the industry and taking excellent care of our clients. To me there a lot more than that. I see them as friends and treat them as such. When I find time to switch off I enjoy my motorbikes, have 4. Clay Pigeon shooting and of course time with family and friends.

Mr John Smith

Yorkshire Depot Manager

EMAIL : john.smith@beacontm.co.uk

I left school in 1986 to pursue a career in HM services. I joined The Royal Army Pay Corps where I was taught accountancy to quite a high level and I also travelled the globe.

The places I served included Northern Ireland, Cyprus and the Falkland Islands to name but a few.

I served no fewer than 7 years before I decided that my life required a different path.

I left HM Forces in 1993 and became a publican for Bass Taverns, where I learned that 18 hour days, 7 days a week weren’t my thing for a very small renumeration package.


At this time my older brother was working on the civils for Pipeline Constructors and took me under his wing to teach me the trade. I worked alongside my brother for approximately 14 years steadily rising to re instatement supervisor. In 2010 I was made redundant from this phase in my life and decided to have a crack at Traffic Management.

I started work for Tony Vincent at Elite Traffic Management and steadily started to perfect this trade under Tony’s guidance. I became quite coherent in CAD drawings, Making specially worded signage using the vinyl machines and running the day to day management of a small tight knit company. In 2017 Tony decided to close his company down and I moved to the corporate world of traffic management within Morrison Utilities Limited where I was employed as a supervisor. Within 3 months of starting this position I was promoted to Senior Supervisor. This role meant I had to run a workforce of around 50 men and vehicles, sort the day to day working of jobs, mastering the art of the work rotas and stock rotation. I found that within all my careers I seemed to excel in this position and then unfortunately covid happened and the work stream slowly started to dry up. I was made redundant in 2020.

I decided at this time that I would do a little for myself and started building bars and fencing. I enjoyed doing this but lacked the motivation as something was missing.

Ritchie gave me a call  a couple of weeks ago to come on board with Beacon Traffic Management and I jumped at the chance as I know this is where my passion lies, managing a good set of lads and running a yard.


My hobbies include joinery/carpentry and anything that tests my mind eg problem solving. I hope in the future to take up golf as my brother keeps nagging me to go play, even to the point he has bought me a set of clubs.
